Hats and Mittens
Hats & Mittens raises money, collects hundreds of hats and mittens for homeless children, and increases awareness of smaller and emerging nonprofits serving children. You can sign up to be a collector for hats and mittens on their website.
Toys for Tots
The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. You can organize a toy drive and then drop off toys collected at one of the drop off sites found on the website.
Make Sandwiches for the Homeless
The first Sunday of every month after each service CROSSROADS makes sandwiches for the homeless in Minneapolis. We ask that you stay after one of our services and donate a few minutes of your time to make a sandwich for those in need. Sandwich Sunday is run on your donations alone. Contact us if you'd like to donate meat, cheese, or other items.
Organization Point of Contact
Operation Gratitude - Write cards/letters to military and first responders.
Because our Deployed Troops and First Responders cant stop, we won't stop! Join us as we continue to give back and say "Thank You" to all who serve by volunteering virtually from home.
Our #VirtualVolunteerism campaign will allow every American the opportunity to support Deployed Troops, National Guardsmen, First Responders, and Emergency Medical Personnel on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are writing letters, knitting, crocheting and sewing handmade items and making paracord bracelets.
The Sandwich Project helps feed 4,500 people per week by delivering sandwiches to various shelters and food shelves. You can sign up to make 150 (or more) sandwiches on the website. You will find instructions and guidelines on the website as well.
